Take the time out to visit this stunning beach in beautiful Clonakilty. Absolutely stunning beach. I could have sat and admired the views all day long.
All the surfers looked delighted with the great waves.

We got a great day of sunshine so headed here for a bit. What a site. Like a postcard. Cars all way one so no fear of getting stuck going in to park. Beautiful sandy beach. Big crowds to, so if you get good weather and are close enough you won't be disappointed

I have been dog walking this beach often when holidaying in west Cork. Wonderful beach but take note of large tides. 2022 Blue Beach award. No dogs on lead allowed between hours of 11am & 7pm during the summer months. Sad in a way as I have found dog owners to be very responsible amongst others using the beach considering there are very few swimmers. More conducive to surfing fraternity.

What an amazing beach! Lovely and quiet and goes on for miles! You can walk around the whole headland (but check the tide times first). No parking charge and you can get a coffee from the takeaway van outside the InchyDoney hotel/spa. Lovely to see people swimming and enjoying learning to surf even in September.

The beach is great, the part that we walked was very clear and not very rocky. There was a surf school on the beach and also a cafe near it. The views from the cliffs are beautiful. There is a small car park there too.

Clean sandy beach. Lifeguards on duty and seem very observant. Couple of snack vans. There's a crepe van but I think only weekends and the crepes are very tasty. Toilets and showers available. Kids spent many happy hours here.

We went on one of the rare very warm days in Ireland.
It was a Monday but it didn’t matter it was packed. An absolute zoo. Traffic jam, nightmare, tourist magnet.

Would maybe go on a rainy day but not on a sunny day.

This is a beautiful long beach outside Clonakilty, particularly in the sunshine. Beware of the rip tides though. There are two beaches and one can be very dangerous if swimming, don't use air beds or any of those kiddies toys.

My family and I decided to visit Inchydoney Beach while in the area. We were looking for a place to walk around after checking our the Model Railway Museum. This was a fantastic choice! The beach has a small area with sand.

We went for a 2 hours walk along beach which was very enjoyable. Beach spotless clean, great watching children learning to surf. Silver Surfer outside Inchydonny Hotel was a great place to get a coffee and chocolate strawberry waffle.
